Life expectancy at birth rose by more than 30 years between and as the overall death rate fell at a relatively constant rate of about 1 percent per year. I repeatedly stated that in my view the current health crisis in the USSR is not a result of some penchant for personal suffering on the part of masochistic Russian mothers and children. Except for a year period between and when the mortality rate was essentially flat, mortality rates have declined at the relatively constant rate of approximately 1 to 2 percent per year since America is no exception.

Right now, the difference in life expectancy between residents of the Soviet Union and the United States is, by coincidence, about the same as between black and white Americans. Meanwhile the oceans are set to heal, the temperature will cool and Canada will become a global superpower. Medical Advances Mass immunisation programmes limited the spread of infectious diseases such as measles. A more active approach to prevention and disease management, as well behavioral changes such as reduced smoking rates and improved diet, further reduced the likelihood of severe heart disease and the associated mortality risk.

In the Soviet Union, on the other hand, the total seems to have been something likeThis suggests that the historical stability of the overall rate of decline may be a coincidence rather than an intrinsic trend. Related posts:. Finally, the lessening of infant mortality reduced the number of births needed to achieve a given family size. Szymanski should reread the second half of my article. By the yearthe age specific death rates for the age group 5—9 and 10—14 will go below one per thousand.

In some versions of transition theory, a fertility decline is triggered when one or more of these socioeconomic factors reach certain threshold values. Despite the steady decline in overall mortality, differences persist between demographic and socioeconomic groups.

Analyzed the data: AY. It would appear that: 1 weaker infants succumbed to these diseases before age one, thus producing a hardier stock of one- to four-year-olds, 2 immunities were developed before the age of one, and 3 the factor of premature birth induced by mothers with influenza spent itself by age one.

Explaining the long term decrease in the death rate

It is full of fascinating speculation and written with an energy that degenerates only occasionally into jauntiness. Szymanski has unfortunately stumbled across a few of these.

By simple arithmetic this would mean at least forty-two, and possibly as much as forty-five per thousand infants die, a rise of well over 50 percent since During the colonial period, there was neither a regular enumeration nor vital registration.

We need to prepare, not for the consequences of a population boom, but a population bust. This account appears particularly plausible for the U. We know a good deal about mortality rates in New England, somewhat less about the Middle Colonies, and least about the South.

It should be noted that the life expectancy for non-whites in the USA in was Urbanization is indeed proceeding apace in the USSR, but this is nothing new.

But it is clear that much of the decline was due to rapid reductions in specific infectious and parasitic diseases, including tuberculosis, pneumonia, bronchitis, and gastro-intestinal infections, as well as such well-known lethal diseases as cholera, smallpox, diphtheria, and typhoid fever.

From this he derived an entire theory of society and human history, leading inevitably to a set of provocative prescriptions for public policy. It remains to be seen whether the East Germans will be able to keep pace in the realm of health in the future.

There is, of course, a diversity of performance on Prospects for rapid decline of mortality rates in Java book sides of the Iron Curtain, but taken in aggregate, life expectancy is not only lower in the Warsaw Pact countries than in NATO, but it is also rising more slowly.

Specific medical interventions beyond more general environmental public health measures were not statistically important until well into the twentieth century. Alexander Smirnov cannot be suspected of exaggerating Soviet difficulties.

The standard explanations do not adequately explain the post-World War II baby boom and subsequent baby bust. Thus we would expect infant mortality to increase the most rapidly where urbanization and the labor force participation of women in the non-farm economy increased the most rapidly.

Even so, the most recent statistics indicate that the fraction of babies dying in West Germany is lower than the rate for East Germany. Individuals with higher education are substantially less likely to smoke, and that difference has been growing over time.

The wealthy today have longer life expectancy than the poor, who still suffer health problems related to poverty.
